Sympathy cards...

These are the hardest cards to make, knowing that the recipient is hurting.  These are also the most rewarding cards to make, because you hope that it makes someone's day a little brighter.

I have a super simple sympathy card, using some of MFT's November Release....

First, I did a little ink blending with Tumbled Glass on the card base.  I added in the birch Solid Birch Trees in a light gray yardstick, then added the Birch Tree detailed dies on top.  I love that extra detail with the subtle color popping through.  I stamped the sentiment in black and then added in a vellum snowflake.

I tried to take a good photo of the snowflake because just the ends are dusted with glitter.  I did that by adding some Tombow Tape Runner adhesive to the ends, and then dipping each one in glitter.  This picture is a tad darker, but I was able to get some of the sparkle....

This is it for today!  I hope you are all ready for December.  It's gonna hit in just a couple hours.  I can't believe Christmas is almost here!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Such a pretty condolence card ! Great inspiration I always have a hard time to find a design for such cards. I'm definitely going to keep this one in mind. And I love how the snowflake blends so nice on top of the blue background.

    Wish you a great day and thanks for sharing such a great layout.
